Sew and Tell Friday!!!

I have been out of the loop for sew and tell for awhile, but i am getting my sewing motivation back. finally! You can see why in my last post.

This week i pulled out a honey bun i had of Hello Betty fabric. I just needed to sew something...and since i did not want to put a whole lot of thought into it i just did it in the order it came off the honey bun...with only a little bit of changing around.

It is just a flimsy at this point, but i will get to quilting it once i get my machine back from the sewing machine hospital. In the meantime i have been doing all of my sewing on Avery's Hello Kitty Janome. When you've gotta sew, you've gotta sew!

You know the drill...head on over to Amylouwho's and see what other pretty things everyone is making and tell them what a good job they did.

Very pretty! It always feels good to get the sewing mojo back after that first trimester yuckiness.

I just bought my daughters the Hello Kitty Janome!

Awesome job! I think I would have gone crazy doing all the long strips, but maybe not? I love it!

Hello Kitty to the rescue!!! Very cheery colors and prints.

Dolly said...

Ooh, that's almost as pretty as her little sewing machine !

Wow, those strips look skinny !
I've never bought a jelly roll.....how wide are the strips to start with?

By the way, my quilt is saved and will be shown tomorrow probably. I've had a "bug" bothering me today..........let's hope I'M not pregnant !!!!!

Beth said...

What a fabulous quilt and great idea to stitch the strips together as they were wrapped!

I love it. Simple designs are my favorite, so I think it's just perfect. Love how the colors worked out too. And somehow it seems even better for having been pieced on a Hello Kitty sewing machine. :-)

Michele said...

that's a great idea for when you just have a need to sew. grab a jelly roll and go to it!
